NC State Falls in First Road Match at No. 20 Georgetown
Aug. 29, 2014
WASHINGTON – The NC State women’s soccer team played its second straight ranked opponent on Friday afternoon, falling by a final score of 6-0 at the No. 20 Georgetown Hoyas.
The undefeated Hoyas benefited from a few strong individual performances, as Vanessa Skrumbis recorded two goals and one assist while teammate Daphne Corboz registered one goal and three assists.
Friday’s match featured the debut of freshman defender Franziska Jaser. The German native trained for the first time in Raleigh on Wednesday immediately following a trip to Canada during which she was a part of the German U20 women’s national team which won the 2014 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup.
“It’s certainly disappointing,” said head coach Tim Santoro. “There’s some anger, but you can’t let these things fester. We have another really tough match on Sunday and we just have to learn from this and move on.”
The Wolfpack (1-2-0) went down by one goal in the 12th minute following an unfortunate defensive deflection after a Sarah Adams shot. Headed towards the far post, the shot was deflected at the six-yard box by a Pack defender and caromed towards the unattended near post.
Georgetown (2-0-1) doubled its advantage in the 40th minute, taking a 2-0 lead when Paul scored her first goal of the match.
Following the halftime break, the Hoyas received goals from Skrumbis (48th and 63rd minutes) and Corboz (53rd minute) to take the 5-0 lead. Kaitlin Bast would score the final tally of the contest in the 89th minute.
NC State will next be in action on Sunday, Aug. 31 against former Atlantic Coast Conference foe Maryland. The Wolfpack and Terrapins will kick off at 6 p.m.
